Some History …

Gadal tried to trace back historically the manifestation of the Grail. It is referred to as the ‘Treasure of Solomon’, taken away by the Romans from Jerusalem to Rome; then, from Rome to Carcassonne, by Alaric, king of the Visigoths. Part of it is transported to Ravenna by Theodoric, and another to Byzantium. The ‘Treasure’ falls in the hands of the Arabs, conquerors of the Visigoths in Toledo, Spain. But the ‘Table of Solomon’ was not included.

The Arabs cross the Pyrenees in 718. Old Spanish romances say that that the ‘Table’, which they name ‘jewel case’, has been kept in the ‘magical cave of Hercules’.

It is in this cave that Roderic, king of the Goths, would have discovered the hidden ‘case’ and, in the ‘case’, three cups.

The magical cave of Hercules is the cave of Lombrives, the Albigensian cathedral, the cave where the Tyrian Hercules left the legend of Pyrene who gave her name to the Pyrenees.

It is in that same cave that the Cathar bishop, Amiel Aicart, received the order to watch over the ‘Sacred Treasure of the Cathars’, after the surrender of Montségur.
